BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent a large military convoy to the southern countryside of the Manbij on Saturday, a source told Al-Masdar News.
According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army’s convoy arrived in the town of Ta Aswad earlier today, as they prepare for the upcoming Turkish military operation.
The Syrian Army’s convoy reportedly consisted of hundreds of soldiers and tens of tanks and armored vehicles, the source added.
This move by the Syrian Arab Army comes just three-days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he was withdrawing his country’s troops from Syria.
While they have yet to receive approval from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to jointly control their territories in northern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army has taken precautionary moves to protect their lands from the Turkish military.
